Hairband Hairstyles – The Big Hair Trend
To say that the hair band hairdo is changing for the better would be an understatement. For those who have grown accustomed to such hair accessories, it is a daunting task to try something new. After all, what’s new when it comes to hair designs?
Hairbands first came into existence as the hairbands you wore on your wrists were simply extensions of the natural hair. However, as the fashion for a longer, thicker, healthier hair was spotted, the hair band hairdo was born.
It’s not the real problem with the hair band and its attachment to the scalp and neck that are a problem. Rather, it is the fact that this unique hairstyle doesn’t provide the glamour that is promised by many.
The end result of this is, the hair band hairdo is becoming unpopular. The traditional band style is being replaced by the short hairband haircut, which can be long or medium length. Whereas in the past the length of the hairband’s final finish was tied in with the length of the hairstyle, nowadays, with the short hairband hair style, the band is not seen to be “legitimizing” the hair or crowning the hair at all.
This is because short hairband hairdos are made to emulate the look of the most popular natural hairstyles. Not only is the length of the final style shorter, but, it also looks more trendy.
These changes in hairdos are a reflection of the changing trends in natural hairstyles. This is primarily due to the change in the reasons why men and women like to do their own hair.
Back in the day, it was black hair that was the most popular of the lot. Many years ago, the darker the hair, the more special it was and the more it was noticed, especially when some celebrity spoke about his or her natural hairdo.
Nowadays, the trend is to have a natural, full head of curly or long hair. Having straightened hair is not such a big deal anymore, so in this regard, the band hairdo has little relevance. Why should a man have long hair and a very short hairband?
In fact, it may even be an insult to have a long hair and a short hairband. Now, if you are a man, and you are trying to have long hair and a stylish hairstyle that will take advantage of your appearance, then the band could be the way to go.
However, if you have straight hair, with a shorter hairband, then you might find that there is no real difference between the two hairstyles. The only difference will be the style, and the style is a classic, yet a new haircut. If this is your kind of look, then a band is definitely something you need to think about.
Perhaps it’s time to make your hair stand out by a trendy style. Whether you are trying to “update” your current look or to go with a new style, a man or woman should remember that there is more than one way to look good, and the band hairstyle is one of the best ways to show off your gorgeous hair.
